Covid-19 deaths in London ‘hit zero’ on several days this month


Deaths from Covid-19 have fallen to zero on several days so far this month in London as the disease is pushed further onto the retreat, official figures reveal today.

They currently show that no deaths, within 28 days of individuals testing positive for coronavirus, were recorded in the capital on April 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 12, with zero also announced yesterday.

Health chiefs say some of these figures may change up to five days afterwards, or possibly even later, so certainly the most recent need to be treated with caution.

However, they highlight how fatalities from the disease in the city are now at a very low level.
